Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 320s-14IKB

79.5% Lenovo IdeaPad 320s (4415U, HD610) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Simple and affordable. Lenovo has presented the IdeaPad 320S, an affordable entry-level notebook. We have tested one of the lowest configurations available and will report how much (or how little) you can expect from a notebook that costs less than $500.

A package of budget components packed in a decidedly non-budget shell – but the whole can't quite cut it.

Model: The Lenovo IdeaPad 320s-14IKB is a sleek, lightweight laptop that packs a processing punch. Whether a user is working remotely or want to watch on the go, they will never feel weighed down. It is also fairly portable at 1.53 kg and measures 19.3 x 327.4 x 236.5 mm. Featuring a minimalist redesign with beveled edges and premium metal cover, the IdeaPad 320S offers chic versatility that will always suit an individual’s style. It often makes Lenovo laptops some of the prettiest in their class. The bit that really hides the Lenovo IdeaPad 320S’s bargain bloodline is the screen style. It is available in three tone-on-tone colors: Mineral Grey, Snow White, and playful Coral Red. The rest of the laptop is made from plastic. The Intel Core i5 7200U CPU, 8 GB DDR4 RAM, and 256 GB SSD combo makes Windows 10 run better than other laptops with a similar specification. There is no awkward wait for the Start menu to pop up, no obvious address bar lag when there are a few browser windows open. For the basics, the IdeaPad 320S is almost enjoyable to use. The IdeaPad 320S also brings Windows 10 Home, featuring a host of exciting new features. The IdeaPad 320S 14" offers startling graphics power, powered by the Nvidia GeForce 920MX. A dedicated graphics card relies on its own processor, accelerating graphics performance by more than 3 times. A user can play games, edit videos and more with reduced screen tearing and advanced photo and video-editing performance.

This version of the IdeaPad 320S has a 14 inch 16:9 IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. An IPS display leaves the user with good colors, great contrast, decent brightness and decent viewing angles. A user can swivel the screen around by almost 180 degrees, and the user will only experience very minimal contrast shift. The keyboard lacks a backlight and the trackpad is a basic plastic surface and has a slightly loud click too. However, it is expected and still acceptable considering this is a very budget laptop. The laptop also features two Harman Kardon speakers with Dolby Audio, the IdeaPad 320S offers advanced sound optimization for greater detail across a wide range of sounds. A user can watch a movie or video chat with a friend and Dolby Audio automatically enhances dialogue and maximizes the volume of the PC without distortion. The IdeaPad 320S is also very quiet. There is a fan, but it is only audible under strain. The IdeaPad 320S can hang on for eight hours just playing back a movie, which is pretty decent. The IdeaPad 320S does not miss out on any connections either. There is the standard budget complement of a couple of USB ports (one is the faster USB 3), an SD slot and an HDMI port.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
